Streets Dept Podcast – SN 2, EP 11: Writing Your Own Story, A Talk with Director and Curator Maori Karmael Holmes

April 24, 2019

Y’all I am so excited to welcome today’s podcast guest, Maori Karmael Holmes!

Maori was literally (in the true meaning of the word) the first person I emailed to ask if she wanted to be interviewed on this season of the Streets Dept Podcast. A world-renowned curator, organizer, and director, Maori is probably best known as the founder of BlackStar Film Festival, an annual celebration of the visual and storytelling traditions of the African diaspora and of global communities. I’ve been following Maori’s work and success for years now, and today we talk about about the importance of film to the human experience, representation vs. authorship, what she’s working on next, and so much more!
